Geographically, culturally, biologically unique, and diverse, Nepal is the most demanding destination for all visitors from every corner of the planet. Trekking, tours, classic peak climbing to the tallest mountain climbing in the world, jungle safari, water rafting with various graded rivers, bungee jumping, etc are the best things to attempt in Nepal. So in this specific country in global, it has four major seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Among them, spring (March, April, May) and autumn (September, October, and November) are the best season of the year to visit Nepal. During this period, often you may expect blue sky, less rain and cloudy, high visibility, perfect temperature, accessible high passes, and many more. But we encounter overcrowding, rushing, less flexibility, noise, and overpriced too. However, this does not mean you cannot explore and enjoy the rest of the months in Nepal. Every season is unique and impressively different while Trekking in Nepal.
Advantages of visiting Nepal in the off seasons
- Fewer tourists
- Flexibility on a trekking date, itinerary, and tea houses during the hike
- Budget-friendly packages
- Privacy & calm during the Himalayas
- Deep attachment with local peoples, their lifestyle, dialects, etc.
- Exploring the sensational snow-capped mountain vistas and untouched culture
- The best photography opportunity ever
Summer (June, July, and August) and winter (December, January, and February) are known as the off-season to visit Nepal which means we encounter lesser crowds.
The Summer season is also called the rainy season in Nepal. During summer, you may encounter heavy rain, muddy trekking trails, leeches in lower altitudes, heat, and lesser views. But you may also enjoy the lush, peaceful atmosphere, cascading waterfalls, connecting with local people, etc. Likewise, there are some isolated regions that are known as rain shadow areas. That means summer is the best time to visit throughout the year.

In winter, high passes would be closed, mountaineering would be impossible, and the temperature goes minus but the clarity would be so high and calm. In fact, winter is the best time for photography, clarity, flexibility, and peace in the Himalayas. As long as you are well-equipped and prepared, this is the best time of the year to visit Nepal. Honestly, winter is my favorite season to go to the Himalayas in Nepal.
